The Carnival of Satire (#67)

Carnival of SatireWe have a slender Carnival of Satire in terms of quantity this weeks, but it’s heavy with quality. We hope you enjoy:

Advertising parody can sometimes be an art in itself, and this French-language spot from Canal+ is great. Don’t worry, it’s got English subtitles. March of the Emperors.

Rickey Henderson has a satirical review of what’s going on at The Food Network.

Madeleine Begun Kane has political poetry: Why Does George Bush Hate Our Troops?

Marvin The Magnificent is worried about witches, but luckily the British government has help. He outlines his cunning plan in Using Passive Millimeter Wave Technology to Fight Evil.

bobbarama.com has Cosmo parody with Guys and their idiotsyncrasies.

And to finish up with more multimedia, The MoxArgon Group has a satirical video of a political nature: Joey & Hugo Sitting In A Tree!

Thanks to everyone for submitting their satire and making this another great carnival. If you submitted something, and it didn’t appear, it’s not that we don’t appreciate the submission, but we just felt it wasn’t right for the carnival. In fact, many submissions were quite funny, but not really satire. Defining that is a moving target, but you’ll find our take on it here, in an essay on Satire’s Ugly Sisters. Thanks to these fine folks for helping us with webby-stuff: the Blog Carnival for their form; and the listings at the Ubercarnival, and at the Blog Carnival too.
